Great story to go along with the "haunted orphanage" set! Her eyes have that lost look that suits a ghost! Creepy in a good way :-)

What a great story! She looks really cute until you look at that little head tilt!

Very good story and image. This is one that could be strengthened by some compositing of the image rendered with and without the ghostly girl so that some small degree of transparency would amplify her ghostly appearance. Such can also be accomplished with materials but is way more complicated that compositing two images. XD
Thanks for sharing.

Ghosts do not have to be transparent. That seems to be a CGI invention. With a more remote camera you can't see her sad face. I experimented with multiple camera positions and this one made the best combination of composition, lighting and mood. In particular the relationship between the girl and the painting on the wall is an important graphic element even if you don't notice it.

I agree ghosts don't have to be transparent and respect your choices as an artist. There's always something to consider. For instance, I am much more select in my use of the tool of narrow DoF as a result of considering feedback offered to me in good faith. =)
